  1. isobar
  2. Convection Current
  3. Jet Stream
  4. Low
  5. air pressure
  1. a narrow belt of strong winds that blows near the top of the troposphere across the US
  2. b a line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure
  3. c the movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfers heat from one part of the fluid to another
  4. d the weight of the air above an object
  5. e Area of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an instrument that measures wind speed
  2. Drives air from areas of higher barometric pressure to areas of lower barometric pressure, causing winds.
  3. an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air
  4. moving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation
  5. an area in which the barometric pressure is greater than that of the surrounding air

5 True/False questions

  1. aneroid barometerAn instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.

          

  2. HighArea of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising

          

  3. Occluded Fronta front where a warm air mass is caught between two colder air masses and brings cool temperatures and large amounts of rain and snow

          

  4. Coriolis EffectThe way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.

          

  5. Mercury Barometeran instrument that measure air pressure, An instrument that measures changes in air pressure without using a liquid. Changes in the shape of an airtight metal box cause a needle on the barometer dial to move.
